cryptocurrency, Fin-Tech, Exchange rate Exposure


This research employs Capital Asset Pricing Model and foreign exchange exposure theory to explain how the value of financial stocks is affected by the home country cryptocurrency. Previous literature proposed that financial stocks were related to the economic or individual financial ratio, but rarely discussed the impact of a cryptocurrency variable in the digital economy. This paper presents specific findings to prove that cryptocurrency development causes structural change in the financial industry, by examining 67,166 panel data observations from China and Taiwan markets. We offer the following important conclusions: 1. Financial stocks in the China market suffer significantly higher impacts from home country cryptocurrency exposure than the Taiwan market. 2. Financial stocks in the China market are more greatly shocked by the CAPM three factors variables than the Taiwan market. 3. There are significant differences between the two financial markets. 4. The dynamics of the adjustment process of cryptocurrency evolution and the monetary system are key solutions for both markets.
